Stitch Nerd Custom Shop

Stitch Nerd Custom Shop is my new website where you can order customized tailor’s pressing hams and seam rolls.

Have something made for you, a friend, or any sewist you know would appreciate a personalized, and very useful sewing gift.

Why buy used, vintage, stained, or maybe even smelly pressing aids when you can have fresh, clean, brand new, and fabulous?

I stock many fun fabric choices so click on the link above or on the photo so you can see for yourself.  OR scan my code!

  1. This was my mother’s machine, now mine. Dad bought in Japan. Would love to have the manual.

  2. Hello! I have been searching for instructions in English! My mother’s manual is in Japanese (it’s called an “Automatic Zigzag” ZJ2-B431 but looks just like the teal Select-o-matic.)
    I am stumbling through the manual AND learning to sew, so, English instructions would be VERY much appreciated.
    Thank you!

  3. Hi Kathy,

    Me too me too! If you’re able to forward a copy of the Brother HZ3-B1 manual I would really appreciate it. I just found a “Select-o-matic” in my local thrift store (lucky me!) and was thrilled to discover its in working condition. The bobbin tension is a little too tight though and I don’t have the foggiest idea how to fix it.

    Thank you so much for your generosity, I didn’t realize the manual would be this difficult to find!


  4. Hi Cathy,
    Could you please send me a copy of the Brother HZ3-B1.
    If I can be of any assistance please let me know.
    You have an open invitation to dinner in Greece, if you ever visit the country!
    By the way this is where I live.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  5. Hello,
    I am looking for a manual for a elnita 245i or one that is pretty close. A little spring came off of it and I have not idea where it belongs…trying to get this machine going in order to teach a few kids at school how to sew. Please help! Thank you.

  6. Kathy,
    I would dearly love to have the pdf copy of the Brother Select-o-matic manual if you are still willing to share! I got a beautiful one as an heirloom and am trying to get it going. It’s in great shape, just needs some technical input. Thank you!

  7. Hi Kathy,

    I just recently aquired a Brother sewing machine model number HZ3-B1. If the Pdf manual is still available, I would greatly appreciate one.

    Thank you kindly,

  8. I just bought a HZ3-B1 for my wife. If you still have the PDF I would be grateful for a copy. Seems like an incredible machine!

  10. I have PDFed a 1954 Brother HZ3-B1 Automatic Zig-Zag sewing machine manual. I have been looking for someplace to share it so if anyone is looking for it they could get it.
